Rashee Rice Wraps Up Rookie Season Quietly

Monday, February 12, 1:22 AM

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice continued his recent muted postseason run with six catches (eight targets) for 39 yards, but his team was still able to bring home their third Super Bowl ring in the last four seasons in Sunday's 25-22 triumph over the San Francisco 49ers. After an electric performance during Super Wild Card Weekend, the 2023 second-rounder failed to reach the 50-yard marker in any of his past three playoff games. It ends a very promising rookie campaign with a bit of a whimper, but Rice cemented himself as quarterback Patrick Mahomes' No. 1 wideout this year. The Chiefs' offseason moves may have something to say regarding Rice's 2024 fantasy draft outlook, however, as it's abundantly clear they need to add a more credible downfield threat into the picture despite Mecole Hardman Jr.'s Super Bowl LVIII heroics. For now, Rice belongs in top-12 conversations at the WR position in way-too-early rankings.

Xavier Hutchinson Catches First Career Pass

Monday, September 11, 11:07 AM

Houston Texans rookie wide receiver Xavier Hutchinson made his NFL debut in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday and finished the 25-9 loss by catching his only target for a nine-yard gain. Hutchinson was Houston's No. 5 receiver in this one with John Metchie III (hamstring) unable to play, and he saw just seven snaps on offense. The 23-year-old sixth-round selection worked behind Robert Woods, Nico Collins, Noah Brown and rookie Tank Dell on the road in Baltimore. The Iowa State has good size, which could make him a red-zone option, but he's buried too far down the Texans' receiver depth chart to be on the fantasy radar in 2023.
